  • Nolan Carroll: Will be released by Dallas

    The Cowboys will release Carroll (concussion) on Wednesday, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Dallas signed Carroll to a three-year, $10 million contract in March and earmarked him for a starting role, but he appeared in just two games before missing the last three contests with a concussion. In Carroll's absence, rookie Jourdan Lewis has stepped up to deliver quality play in a starting role and has generated 19 tackles, five pass deflections and an interception over four appearances. With Lewis in the fold and promising second-round rookie Chidobe Awuzie also healthy after having missed time with a hamstring injury, it appears there wouldn't have been a sizable role waiting for Carroll upon his return from the concussion. The Cowboys will still be the hook for the $4 million guaranteed in Carroll's contract as the veteran cornerback returns to the free-agent pool.

  • Cowboys' Nolan Carroll: Not fully clear of concussion

    Carroll (concussion) was a full participant at the Cowboys' practice Wednesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

    Carroll has missed the last two games after sustaining the concussion Week 2. It's certainly a step in the right direction for the 30-year-old, but Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram indicates Carroll has yet to fully clear the league's concussion protocol, and his status for Sunday's game against the Packers remains uncertain.

  • Cowboys' Nolan Carroll: Questionable to play

    Carroll (concussion) is questionable to play Sunday against the Rams.

    It isn't clear if Carroll has cleared concussion protocol yet. Given his questionable tag, he presumably hasn't. That means he'll need to gain clearance from both the team and an independent neurologist prior to Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff in order to play.

  • Cowboys' Nolan Carroll: Out for Monday's game

    Carroll (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday's contest, David Helman of the team's official site reports.

    Carroll has yet to clear through the league's concussion protocol and will subsequently be forced to miss Monday's game. Given the nature of head injuries, it's unclear for how long Carroll will be sidelined. Jourdan Lewis figures to be the primary beneficiary during his absence.

  • Cowboys' Nolan Carroll: Remains in concussion protocol

    Carroll remains in the NFL's concussion protocol and won't practice Thursday, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    Carroll's absence for the Cowboys' first practice session of the week doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up in the team's matchup with the Cardinals on Monday night. While the Cardinals' passing attack has been far from potent this season, having a starting cornerback in Carroll unavailable for that contest would nonetheless be a significant blow for a Cowboys secondary that was shredded for 232 yards and four touchdowns by the Broncos' Trevor Siemian in Week 2. On a more positive note, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett relayed that Orlando Scandrick (hand), the team's other starting corner, is slated to practice Thursday, according to Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News.

  • Cowboys' Nolan Carroll: Considered day-to-day

    Carroll (concussion) is currently considered day-to-day after suffering a concussion against the Broncos on Sunday, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    The day-to-day designation came from head coach Jason Garrett, but considering that Carroll is dealing with a concussion, it's nearly impossible to truly gauge until he actually clears the concussion protocol. Chidobe Awuzie (hamstring) is also day-to-day, and the Cowboys' are potentially looking at some serious depth issues at cornerback.

  • Cowboys' Nolan Carroll: Out with concussion

    Carroll left Sunday's game against the Broncos with a concussion, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Carroll was forced to leave Sunday's game alongside fellow defensive back Chidobe Awuzie (hamstring), so the Cowboys were left with just two healthy cornerbacks in Anthony Brown and Jourdan Lewis. With Orlando Scandrick (hand) still out, Dallas could potentially be dealing with serious depth issues in the secondary in the coming weeks.

  • Cowboys' Nolan Carroll: Arrested Monday morning

    Carroll was arrested Monday on suspicion of driving under the influence, Claire Z. Cardona of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Carroll, who signed a three-year, $10 million deal with the Cowboys this offseason, could be subject to league discipline due to this transgression. The cornerback has been working with the first-team defense during OTAs.
